You can use Kext Helper to install if you don't want to use the terminal: http://cheetha.nethttp://web.mac.com/v1.42ghz/Kext_Helper/Software_files/Kext%20Helper%20b7.zip
It's recommended to delete Extensions.mkext after still to ensure the new kext gets loaded.

Terminal method:
1.Extract the zip to your guest OS X desktop (not into a folder, literally to your desktop) this means there should be a file on your desktop called AppleAC97Audio.kext?
2. Open Terminal, (/applications/utilities/terminal.app)?
3. Type sudo -s in terminal then your admin password following this, now you should be root.?
4. Type sudo mv /users/(YOUR USERNAME)/desktop/AppleAC97Audio.kext /system/library/extensions ?
at this point the file AppleAC97Audio.kext should have disappeared from the desktop,?
IchDriver5. Type sudo chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/AppleAC97Audio.kext

UPDATE: x86-64 source with VirtualBox tweaks here:
AppleAC97Audio-5-x86-64_sources.zip
AppleAC97Audio x86-64 source with VirtualBox tweaks, needs work for proper sound quality.

Note: This is just the source and requires XCode to compile, theres some issues with the audio quality that came with the 64-bit port that I haven't the time to track down so i'm putting it up to the community and the VirtualBox devs to take a crack at it, the important thing is this source is full 32/62-bit compliant.
